I moderated a discussion during the Leadership Forum in an unconference session at Autodesk University last week.

When moving from the comfort zone as we engage with change, we move to denial and denigration. We then move towards confusion and chaos and start asking very detailed questions about the “new world”.
Finally, we move towards renewal and revitalization and start to accept the change, and also that we will be fine and cope with whatever comes. What is important about this model is that we all cycle through these stages for all changes to a greater or lesser degree. As a result of being aware of and accepting my personal change profile; I believe I am an effective change angel.
Stepping up to the challenges that await you as a BIM Leader is a healthy change we can all take boldly. Understanding that the role of a leader is to inspire, this can happen at all levels of an organization – not just the BIM Manager.

This is when we deny the change is happening and become highly critical of the changes taking place. When walking along side others going through change I can be empathic, supportive and provide leadership and certainty. You can be seen by your fellow project team members as much more than simply a model manager. Participation was rather lively, and many who attended approached me afterwards with kind words. Statistically speaking most people struggle with change by experiencing changes as disruptive, anxiety provoking and confusing.
Do you embrace the new technology with ease or do you approach the change with slight feelings of trepidation? This is the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it stage” often in complete denial of the continuous improvement learning cycle. In the case of the mobile phone you can read the user manual and it is surprising how often we delay getting assistance until we are frustrated and irritable beyond reason… Delaying reading the manual or getting help is in and of itself a form of denial. As a project BIM Leader, you must demonstrate the ability to effectively lead strategy, not just technology for successful adoption of a true-BIM workflow. For those who would like to see the summarized notes, helpfully taken by Jason Grant on his iPad using my favorite new app SoundNote, you may download them from the links below.

Because organizations often do not take the holistic approach required to see the change through. However, by following the 8-Step Process outlined by Dr. The beauty of the aforementioned app is the notes are timestamped and associated with the audio.
Now, audio recorded even with the best equipment in a large room renders less clear commentary, so I provide with hesitation. By improving their ability to change, organizations can increase their chances of success, both today and in the future.
When going through changes I take extra care with rest, relaxation, give myself time to think and surround myself with supportive colleagues.
Kotter has proven over his years of research that The 8-Step Process for Leading Change will help organizations succeed in an ever-changing world.
